AJCC Staging Desk Reference AJCC Staging Desk Reference
10CA-0001

The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) has developed the Staging Desk Reference to serve as a handy tool for use when abstracting cancer cases. The Staging Desk Reference is not intended to replace the Seventh Edition AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, but rather serve as a useful resource that can quickly and easily provide specific information relevant to staging.

The first section, General Staging Rules, provides the TNM rules formatted for quick access. Chapter 1 of the Cancer Staging Manual provides more information and context, but the basic rules are provided in the Staging Desk Reference. The Cross Reference section was created to help registrars quickly match ICD-0 codes, CSv2 schemas, and AJCC manual chapters. Two frequently used cross references are provided in this section, the first organized by ICD-O-3 Site Code, and the second by AJCC manual chapter. These features provide users with two options for finding information they need. This booklet will be particularly useful when trying to determine which AJCC staging form to use for a particular code. Finally, the Head and Neck Nodes section provides a helpful tool for identifying nodes in an often confusing part of the anatomy.
